Washington - An independent investigation into the deadly 11 September attack on the US diplomatic mission in Libya is complete. Congress will be briefed on the panel's report this week.

The state department said on Monday that the Accountability Review Board's findings would be sent to Congress before the panel's two most senior members testify in closed session before the House and Senate foreign affairs committees on Wednesday.

The committees will hear open testimony on the report on Thursday.

State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland said the board submitted its report to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Monday.

Clinton had been scheduled to appear before the committees this week, but cancelled after fainting and sustaining a concussion while recovering from a stomach virus that left her severely dehydrated.
